The University Physics covers Mechanics, Gravitation, Waves, Sound, Thermodynamics, Fluids, Electricity, Magnetism, and Optics. Various concepts and ideas of physics are developed starting from a few basic principles. The examples in the book contain both the numerical and the symbolic problems. The level of the rigor is suitable for the students concurrently enrolled in the Calculus sequence in Mathematics. Detailed guided exercises and challenging problems help students develop their skills in problem solving.
